We introduced an important editorial error in this Clinical Review by Douglas Fleming at proof stage (BMJ 2005;331:1066-9, 5 Nov). While rephrasing a sentence, we inadvertently omitted the word “not.” So in the box titled “Learning point: Example 4” the penultimate sentence should read: “Pregnancy is not a contraindication for vaccination.” In the full text (HTML) version of this article on, an electronic glitch resulted in an additional error: part of the main article appeared with the text of the same learning point box. All these errors have been corrected in the online versions of the article
